Can anyone recommend a USB webcam for motion?
« on: November 23, 2008, 04:51:06 pm »
I see that Philips devices, which seem to be regarded as the best quality webcams, are no longer supported with the default kernel:

Can anyone recommend a USB webcam for use as a security device, which is easily available (e.g. eBay)? There are no suggestions on the wiki from what I can see. It would need to have some method of mounting to a wall etc.

Regards,

Chris

I can really recommend the axis network cameras. They are a bit more expensive than those usb cams but high quality and well supported.
